After attending the Achievement Now Workshop my career has greatly improved. Craig was a thorough and concise trainer, modifying the course to fit our individual needs to maximize growth and achievement potential. I would highly recommend any of his courses he offers as he takes into account what best pertains to your situation and keeps it interesting. You will learn a lot about yourself and what you need to do to make positive changes in your life!

I completed Craig’s memory workshop as a college student, and continue today to utilize the skills I learned. I have been complemented numerous times in my professional career and my personal life on my ability to remember people’s names, give presentations without needing note cards, and recall dates. His engaging personality and ability to connect with his students makes this investment in oneself an enjoyable one.

I have to say the greatest gift of the seminar was to give me full access to mental abilities that I always had but didn't realize I had. The confidence I have in my ability to learn and remember anything has dramatically changed my life and my career.

YOU WERE AWESOME! We are all still talking about the training! I have to tell you as an instructor myself, I find it hard to focus sometimes in classes, and you kept that entire room engaged the whole day! It was outstanding. I have taken many, many, many classes in my real estate career, and this was by far the BEST class I have ever taken. Thank you again for a great day!
